We delivered a solid winner here at the Sportsbook Room as the Massachusetts Minutemen got the outright win and pointspread cover getting a generous +7 ½ points against the Drexel Dragons last night. Like we said Massachusetts is a good basketball team and more importantly has been battle tested against good teams from a very reputable Atlanta 10 conference that features a Sweet 16 team in Xavier and got a very good showing from the St Louis Billikens who gave Michigan St a scare in the Round of 32. St Bonaventure also played Florida St very tough in the NCAA Tournament. Our top betting pick for Wednesday night comes from the NIT Tournament quarterfinal NCAA college basketball game between the Nevada Wolf Pack and the Stanford Cardinal. The Wolf Pack and Cardinal will tip off from Stanford at 9PM Eastern Time with national television coverage provided by ESPN2. Our college basketball best betting tip tonight is playing on the Nevada Wolf Pack +6 ½ points against the Stanford Cardinal. The betting line from this college basketball contest is courtesy of Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The pointspread opened up in this NIT Tournament game with the PAC 12 conference home club the Stanford Cardinal lined as a -6 point betting favorite with the over under at 135 ½ points. Money early has shown on the home team as Stanford has been bet up to a -6 ½ point betting favorite. The over under has steamed up to a current line of 138 points. Money line players who bet the favored Stanford Cardinal will lay -290 odds. Those who believe the road underdog Nevada Wolf Pack can get the win tonight outright will get back +260 odds for the money line wager.
The Nevada Wolf Pack has been a solid road team this season with a 10-2 straight up record this season. This WAC conference club is playing well with six wins over their past seven games. You have to respect the 68-59 road win in a first round NIT win at Oral Roberts. They were competitive in their road losses this year with a 6 point loss at NCAA Tournament team Iona and a four point loss at NCAA tourney club UNLV. Nevada has defended well over their past five games by allowing opponents just 63 points and 41.6% shooting. There is a lot of enthusiasm from the Nevada Wolf Pack faithful as they will make the drive from Reno Nevada to Palo Alto to support their college basketball team.
There has been little interest from the Stanford fan base for the NIT Tournament as crowd attendance has been sparse. You won’t see any Stanford alumni and fans at Madison Square Garden should the Cardinal win here. The Cardinal has not been playing good on the defensive end of the court as they have allowed their past five opponents 73 points and over 39% shooting from the three point line. They gave up 88 points in an overtime win on Monday to Illinois St. Take the Nevada Wolf Pack plus the 6 ½ points tonight at the best sports books.
